Okay now you are full on Olympic class stupid. Do you think his offer to the Rs will reduce the debt or even the deficit? Do you think they should have accepted it as offered?

Funny. More people got off government assistance and went into the work force during the Contract With America years than at any other time in the country's history.


Of course, getting people off government assistance was definitely a goal. Getting those people to work wasn't.

All your post is is bull shite. Straight up

SO - this is your response to my attempt to put forth my thoughts and my rationale.

I knew it would come to this - cut and run away with an insult.

Not surprised.

You are happily and voluntarily stupid - have fun.

And tell YOUR president in the oval office that *I* said to eat Shiite and get Sikh.

re: Obama isn't serious about the deficit. He just wants to punish the wealthy.


quote:

The American voters are coming to their senses and realizing that GOP economic policy is not a good long term policy.


That's really strange because Unemployment under Bush averaged about 5% and he had long-term tax plans. Under Obama Unemployment has been north of 8% and he hasn't had any sort of long-term tax plan other than "tax the rich". That's not a coincidence.

quote:

Sorry, the GOP basically invented borrow and spend in the 80's

And once they got back in in 2001, they repeated it


Dems held control of the House during the entirety of Reagan's Presidency and of the Senate during most of that same time. They've also had control of 2/3 of the policy-making part of the government during the exact time period that we have had continual 1T+ deficits.

No matter how many times you back up and try to re-phrase it, you're completely and utterly wrong and I will continue to prove it in each and every post.

Running on a platform of fiscal responsibility then purposefully doing the exact opposite to a historic level isn't being an a-hole?

I guess my sin today is giving you and Rex too much credit. The "given" in this is that if people get off of public assistance, they then get jobs and begin contributing to society instead of just taking from it.

So to spoon-feed it to you, Janice, the Contract With America got people off public assistance and got them into jobs - which is a big part of why Unemployment dropped during those years.

Doesn't want to cut spending? I guess the 600 billion or so he wants to cut from medicare is just nothin...

If you were serious about wanting a debt free nation you'd start looking into how our money is created.

He cut it from Medicare (a government program) and redirected it to Obamacare (a government program.) That's not cutting, it's reallocating.

That's like arguing that since you only have $20 you'll spend $40 on the steak and lobster instead of $40 on steak and wine.

One President got in office around the time when our economy was collapsing. THe other didn't.

The Senate was controlled by the GOP for about 6 of the 8 years Reagan was in office.

You just got busted spouting nonsense about who controlled the Senate when Reagan was President.

If you want to blame Obama for spending the past 4 years, the Reagan and Bush get credit for the debt in the 80's and Bush in the earlier part of this decade. You have to decide because the GOP is complicit in this debt situation no matter how sensitive you are to those charges.

No, he faces fierce opposition from the GOP because they are a bunch of children.
